also in unwind that they have this thing called “storking” where mothers (or parents) who can’t/don’t want to raise a child to thirteen leave their babies on other people’s doorsteps in hopes they’ll take the kid in. sometimes babies will get passed around several times. it’s very illegal and done in the dead of night, of course. i really liked that concept because it’s an interesting solution to the whole issue of people not wanting to raise a child to thirteen
I saw this shelf in Books-a-Million the other day and wept silent, happy tears.

Thanks! Bee anon, this anon has the answer.
Apparently everybody but me knows about this show. Lol. *under a rock I tell you
I went to the original source of the post and the blogger had tagged the show. It was Parks and Recreation.
Anonymous said: That gif you just posted with the bees. What show is that?
I have no idea! I reblogged it because I thought it was cute and funny.
Sorry! I can try to google it!

Oh good. At least he’s alive. How creepy is it if he was dead?
I will play the kazoo while I make Frank Sinatra sing at the top of his lungs to attract ships or whatever. Don’t know how effective that will be but it will be entertaining for sure.
hm…a boat wasn’t listed among the assets…so will this be singing/kazoo playing while treading water?
Oh woops, I kinda just assumed they’d be in a boat, but you’re right, no vessel was mentioned xD so yup, bobbing up and down in the middle of the ocean while singing and playing the kazoo hahhaa
Anonymous said: Could you explain the Unwind book (series?) a little more? It sounds interesting, but I'm still not sure what it's about.
Unwind seemed to get the most attention from that list (which almost 700 notes. WHY ARE YOU PEOPLE REBLOGGING THAT? I wrote that at 1am and mostly as a joke. I don’t understand) since it’s the least known. hmm…
Unwind is a sci-fi/dystopian book series where there had been a war after people fought over abortion and all those related issues. No one was happy with either side so the solution was that nobody could abort/terminate a pregnancy BUT from age 13-18, parents have the option to “unwind” the teen - sort of retroactive abortion - meaning the kids would get almost all (like 99% because nothing is wasted) of their body parts harvested and given to those who need and can afford it. Parents can do it because the teen is unuruly, or they can’t afford to feed another kid or whatever reason they want (See addition below). The logic behind unwinding is that no one technically dies, that they just live on as parts of a whole in the other person’s body - like they can still have some sort of consciousness or muscle memory or something like that.binsentonaitorei said:
